There are many people out there that can’t afford to go on holiday and this is particularly the case for many students around the globe. The point is that travel is something that everyone should have access to and it is easy to get there if you know how. I decided to make this guide as a result, so here are some of my tips for affording your next holiday.
Get a good deal
One thing that I find over and over again is that people are not hungry enough to find a great deal. I find that many people do not go the extra mile to get the best deal and as a result they think they can’t afford to have. The best thing to do is to subscribe to newsletters for travel websites and constantly check My Voucher Codes and other sites to find the best deals for your next holiday.
Work as you go
A great solution to the travel problem is to work in another country as you travel. A gap year in many countries is a rite of passage and of course an opportunity of a lifetime. Working as you travel is perfect because you can have a nice balance of work and travel, and of course you can fund your travel too. Not only will you get to travel, but you will get some experience working in another place too.
One of the best ways to reach your travel goals is to make sacrifices and really save your money. My favourite thing to do is to constantly compare the prices to the place you want to go. For example, imagine going out in London and spending £100 on a night out. This is probably your budget in Thailand for two weeks! By constantly reminding yourself of these facts you will be more aware of saving and you can keep your money for bigger and better things.
Get another job
Most people are just not doing enough to afford a holiday, the problem is that they complain about not getting enough money. We already talked about sacrifices and getting another job is the perfect way to actually get the extra money for your next trip. Perhaps you can do some part time work in addition to your regular job and reap the rewards on your amazing holiday.
